Site Size & Condition: Unknown L16119 (ບໍ່ຮູ້ - Pronounced: Unknown)


Another probably ancient temple site situated within the confines of Shrestapura ancient city. The vegetation-covered square mound lies in the far northwest corner of the enclosed area, some 2kms west of Wat Luang Kao. The site is aligned east-west and features small, but still water-filled, ponds to the east and northeast.

Note the site is not specifically listed by UNESCO but does fall within the designated World Heritage area.


If you happen to be in the area and visit this site, we would love to find out more about the site such as the name of the site, the size and condition of the site, what is still in situ and a few photos of the site.

We highly recommend that you consult a local guide or villager to escort you to the site, as there is a possibility of mines or UXO's when visiting remote and secluded sites. If you do decide to venture out on your own, please follow the beaten path and becareful!

Beyond Angkor does not guarantee that you will find any remains at this site. The site has been listed based a probability of a site existing at this particular location. We are not equip with 1.5 million dollar LIDAR equipment like the professional archaeologists, to scan the landscape for ancient formations, instead we have simply used the naked eye on satellite imagery to determine these 'probable' historic sites. We are pleased to say that a large number of sites we seeked remotely from the comforts of our own home, have been confirmed to be in fact 'tuols'. As sites are confirmed by explorers and reported, we have then appropriately relisted the sites with the local name and details of what have been found in situ. These sites can be found in the category No CISARK.

Beyond Angkor and the team at Beyond Angkor are not liable for any damages or injuries sustained when seeking out any historical sites listed, especially of these unknown sites. Please ensure you have the relevant travel insurance for your journey and let someone know where you are headed each day.
